Happy St. Paddy's Day & More From Canada Blooms
More from my visit to Canada Blooms yesterday. One of my favourite sections is the Ontario growers who present a sampling of what they've got in their greenhouses at the moment. Thought the yarn wrapped tulips were adorable.
Something I'll just appreciate rather than do. Can imagine Hercules the Cat trying to figure where the end was in all this marvelous wool.
It will be May until we see any outdoor Azaleas around. These will have to do in the interim.
I'm not an African violet fancier, but did think the display of minis all balled up together was pleasant.
Don't think I've ever found stems as long as these at the supermarket - must be shipped to florists instead.
Now, for the marketplace. Look at those marvelous hybridized Blue Orchids (Second in beauty and dash only to the rare Blue Carnation!)
Under the doozie category take a look at what this vendor had: a geometric extravaganza that flows and steams!
I'm back to tour again tomorrow with a good buddy - more pictures to come.
